I didn’t care for his small role on ATWT but did like him as Reva’s son on GL. I don’t think I have ever seen him on anything else.

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Sits Down with Maurice Benard on ‘State of Mind’

Om his latest episode of his You Tube series, State of Mind, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Cortinhos) welcomes his co-star Cynthia Watros (Nina Reeves) for a highly-anticipated conversation and episode.

GH fans have watched for months on-air as Nina and an amnesiac Sonny aka “Mike” fell for each other, while everyone in Port Charles thought Sonny was dead, and Nina kept that secret in her vendetta against Carly.

Now, the two powerhouse performers have an intimate chat about Watros’ career highlights, raising twins, and working with each other in their often controversial storyline.

Daytime audiences first saw Watros as Annie Dutton on Guiding Light in which she won a Lead Actress Daytime Emmy – a performance which Benard recalls seeing with Cynthia acting up a storm in scenes on a courtroom witness stand that blew him away.

On her start on soaps, Cynthia shared that: “Soaps are amazing,” because not only do they help you make decisions really quickly, but that as an actor, it also taught her about lighting and finding her mark.

Cynthia related that she had made the heart-wrenching decision to leave New York and the role of GL’s Annie Dutton, because she wanted to go to L.A to work, which eventually landed her the role in the second season of ABC’s hit drama, Lost.

Throughout this State of Mind, Maurice and Cynthia touch on themes of depression, anxiety, and for Watros, raising her two teenaged girls, during this Covid-19 world we have all been living though.

When it came time to discuss working together on GH, Benard expressed that Cynthia has been a “a gem” to work with, after he had initial reservations about the storyline GH was set to tell.

In return, Watros shared that she has loved the storyline adding: “I love the complexity of it and how it’s not neat and clean since that’s how we are as people, we all make mistakes, and we are not all perfect.” And in working in scenes with Maurice, Cynthia expressed that he is “a rock’ who grounds everyone he works with.

Watch the entire conversation between Maurice and Cynthia on the latest State of Mind below. 

Then, let us know if you enjoyed the chat between the two, and if you are rooting for more Nina and Sonny, or are you still Team Carson via the comment section.
